Manayunk.com and ADVENT are excited to bring the Philadelphia Mummers to Main Street in Manayunk. Don't miss out on the biggest family-friendly Mardi Gras celebration in the city! Attendees will be treated to numerous performances from the most prominent string bands parading down Main Street. This winter spectacular event will allow families to enjoy all the pageantry of the Mummers in the quaint neighborhood setting of Manayunk.
The day-long celebration will not only provide excitement for Manayunk, but will contribute exposure and raise money for one of the greatest traditions in Philadelphia: The Mummers!
